CORC Members Forum: The future of outcome measurement in education and mental health services

It is our pleasure to invite you to our CORC Members’ Forum on the 15th November, 9:30 – 16:30 at the Anna Freud Centre at 12 Maresfield Gardens, London NW3 5SU.

The focus of this year’s forum is the future of outcome measurement in education and mental health services. We are delighted to be welcoming senior policy colleagues from NHSE and DfE to reflect on the green paper on transforming children and young people’s mental health provision and the Government’s response. 

Other exciting contributions will include Dr Jessica Deighton sharing the latest findings from 30,000 children and young people involved in school-based interventions – please see our outline agenda below.

Bringing together members and colleagues from the education and mental health sector, the day will feature inspirational speakers, presentations and panels, as well as member reflections and updates on their recent work. With an opportunity for our members to network, discuss and explore exciting topics and to shape CORC approaches. 

Our aim is to reflect with members on the intersection between mental health services and schools in light of new policy initiatives and emerging ways of working. 

You also have the opportunity throughout the day to learn more about the exciting work of our close collaborating partners, such as Schools in Mind and the HeadStart Learning Team and we offer you many useful free resources on measuring mental health and wellbeing.

We would also like to highlight that as part of the day there will be refreshments and a complimentary networking lunch. Please let us know of any dietary and access requirements that you may have.

Book your place now, and get in touch with us at if you have content you would like us to feature on the day.
